Varnish is a data caching platform, which is occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy. It is a website accelerator that can accelerate the loading speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor opens any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server in case the visitor loads it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the web server and the page will load considerably faster, since the Varnish caching platform can serve content many times faster than any web server software. The end result will be a substantially faster loading website, which leads to a greatly improved website browsing experience. When any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual website, the content that Varnish caches in its memory is updated too, so the website visitors will not see out-of-date data.

Varnish in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be able to activate Varnish with a few clicks of the mouse via your Control Panel. The platform comes as an optional upgrade with all our plans and you can select how many sites will use it and the total storage space that will be used for the cached data. The two features that can be upgraded in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel are the number of instances and the amount of memory and they are not directly tied to each other, so you can decide whether you want a lot of memory for a single large-scale website or less memory for several smaller ones. You can take advantage of the full potential of Varnish in case the sites use a dedicated IP. Using the Control Panel, you can easily start/restart/shut down an instance, clear the cached files independently for each website that uses the Varnish platform or check an in-depth log.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Varnish is offered as standard with all semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The Varnish caching platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can use it with any site that you host in the semi-dedicated account. If you’re in need of more, you can increase the system memory allowance. The memory itself is offered in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The very same section will permit you to add more instances as well, if you wish to use the Varnish platform with more sites. The two upgrades can be added independently – you can cache the content of one single large-sized website or use a number of sites with the default memory. You can take full advantage of the Varnish platform in case you have a dedicated IP address and you can get one with your semi-dedicated server plan as well. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over the platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to clear the cache, to view a system log file or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

You can use the load balancing capabilities of Varnish with each of our VPS hosting when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The data caching platform is available by default and the amount of memory that it’ll be able to utilize to cache your website content depends upon the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but even with the lower-end packages, you will have no less than several hundred MB of memory at your disposal exclusively for data caching purposes. This amount is sufficient to improve the performance of multiple websites. It will take a little time for you to see the results, as Varnish caches the content that site visitors request, but shortly after that you will notice the significantly reduced server load and the accelerated site browsing speed. Varnish will permit you to use a less powerful Virtual Private Server plan for websites which would typically need a more high-priced web hosting service.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need the most powerful web hosting solution and you buy any of the dedicated hosting services that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the Varnish content caching platform to optimize the work of your sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated machine is ordered with our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. Its easy-to-work-with GUI will allow you to monitor platform processes, to clear the cached content or to reboot any instance with one click of the mouse. The smallest amount of system memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache content is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous selection of large-scale websites, so your dedicated server will be able to handle a colossal system load while your website visitors are having a smooth browsing experience. Since your dedicated machine will include a number of dedicated IP addresses, you’ll be able to make use of Varnish’s full capacity.
